  • Fill in short term as needed for staffing gaps due to departures. This may include documentation prior to departures, stepping in to support on transition, reconciliations, or reviews as needed until replacements are found. This will give a unique opportunity to learn almost all aspects of Finance from a hands-on perspective over a short period of time.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2+ years of relevant experience in Financial Systems Analysis, Process Improvements or equivalent

  • Bachelor’s degree in accounting or finance, or equivalent experience
